monorail control panel looks like it's running some ancient version of Windows

Out of town friends make a good excuse to ride the monorail

Had the opportunity to go up to a really high tower in , obligatory Space Needle photo

Fare enforcement on the :kcm_e_line: in photographing someone's ID after scanning their ORCA card. Interestingly, he didn't seem to scan the barcode on the back.

New policy? I wonder what happens to that data.

Snowy from above (okay it's more like SeaTac because I was flying in from California)

Headed in to town to walk the new SR99 tunnel. The :kcm_e_line: line is completely packed, this can't all be for the tunnel... Or maybe it's just a side effect of the traffic rerouting

someone ran across NB traffic from the east and it all stopped for a bit. Also someone else keeps riding south on the northbound lanes and fucking up traffic more

Camera is annoying to link to: web6.seattle.gov/travelers/

residents: is there a tool to get the garbage/recycling collection schedule in ical format/something that can be imported into Google Calendar?

It looks like it's just an HTTP endpoint that includes the address in the query parameters and returns JSON, should be pretty simple to convert to ical, but maybe someone has already done this and I won't have to?

Power is flickering up here in the Northgate area. Looks like a bunch of other places are out

Looking for suggestions for themed emoji. Right now I want to try to do one for each transit route, and probably some of the usual landmarks (space needle, market, idk... other stuff? Open to suggestions)
